    We are away for the weekend and using disposables so we don't have to cart poopy nappies interstate. Realised that most of dd's pants are too big without cloth nappy booty :/

    Yeah I heard this a little while ago hence I feel a bit guilty. But I figure
    A) I don't know ANYONE who uses a disposable flush the solids down the loo first so I'm a little bit greener then they are
    B) I throw all my dog poos in the bin?!? so what's one little human turd going to do anyway?

    I'm not sure of the reasoning behind why we can't bin it, or whether it applies to everyone, plus I know on my council website there is no mention of it either. I'm not sure where I heard it from, I think it was Bubhub?

    But I figure using cloth is hard enough work without me scraping runny messy poop into a toilet, (solid non squished ones are fine!) if I had to deal with that I'd probably be less inclined to use cloth at all.

    Complete myth. I spend way way too much time at landfills (and sewage treatment plants) and there is no rule about putting poo in the garbage.

    I used to use flushable liners, but don't use any at the moment. DD's poo's are solid enough to dump straight in the toilet without a liner. I haven't heard of flushables causing a problem at treatment plants (there are plenty of worse things that end up there). I probably wouldn't use flushables if you were on a septic system, but other than that I don't think they are a problem.

    I've seen an article on flushable liners and those flushable wipes adults use and they aren't really all that flushable in regards to what the do at the end of the line. But I reckon if you're a MCN family your environmental impact is far less so do what works for you. I decided to use MCNs when I realised the disposables my 18 year old neice used still wouldn't have broken down at all, just sitting there in landfill... Anything you can do to avoid that and keep using MCNs is great in my book!

    I use cloth mostly for environmental reasons.. As far as I'm aware, it is illegal to put human waste in the bin (though honestly I'm not sure what the difference is between human & dog poo really) and packs of disposable nappies actually include emptying the poo from the nappy into the toilet before throwing it away in the instructions. I really don't like the idea of tonnes of untreated human waste sitting in landfill for possibly 500 years, plus the chemicals used as absorbent agents in disposables.
    I am using Eco disposables at night at the moment because DD is teething & her wee is burning her skin being in the nappy overnight. They get emptied in the morning & popped in the compost bin to decompose

    I flush poo from sposies when I use them. Makes my rubbish smell better.

    It is not illegal to put poo in the bin. Compared to the things that go into a landfill, a few nappies of poo aren't really going to make a difference. Not to mention that it would be impossible to enforce.

    My work days include designing landfills and of more concern to me are batteries, oils, paints, chemicals, fuels, gas bottles, spray cans and anything else that can either go bang when the guys hit it with a machine or that can leach heavy metals into the landfill. A few nappies aren't even on my radar.

    I've read it so many times over the years on here but never believed it! Great to hear from someone actually in the know.

    My argument has always been that it's impossibe to get every last bit of poo out of a disposable nappy. The law can't allow for a little bit of poo but not a lot. Too subjective!
